HWC — Europe Championship coverage

 

Eight teams reached the final part of Heroes of the Storm World Championship — Road to BlizzCon regional qualifiers, but only two of them will advance to the next stage. Our roster got into group A which has been named the group of death, since three out of four teams there are considered to be the favorites to win the tournament. This competition is one of the most important events of this year, which means that all matches will be intense.
